Finally, finally, finally!!

We have finally decided on a location to have our wedding and reception and set our date.  This has changed 3 times due to the original venue being booked and family members not being able to attend.  I would like to have as much as our family here to celebrate in our special day and now we were able to make that happen, hopefully!! ha  So I feel so relived as we have our venue picked and we are setting up a tasting for the catering.  The MIL wanted us to taste it, so I just emailed the coordinator and we are getting that done.  Glad that is done.  I have had several people volunteer to help me with table centerpieces and whatever else I need help with, bless the sweet ladies that are so giving!  I will really be thanking them closer to time when I am about to pull my hair out...or just start crying!  More  likely to cry! ha 

I know I have been posting lately, with being busy with school and crazy work, it's hard to get on here and complain write about my day.  I feel like Negative Nancy lately, so I have decided to not post.  But after tomorrow, when my final is done, I will be back in full force with more ideas and pictures.  And I am super excited to keep my little C for a week before school starts.  We have lots of fun things to do...or just swim all day!!  I kid I kid, we are going to see the sharks and maybe do a little shopping...anything to stay cool!!

I am ready for a break...

So I need a break from the, the heat, and school.  Luckily this weekend we are headed to Lake Texhoma for a full filled weekend with friends.  I am so excited to go to the lake and enjoy a little sun, water and an all around good time.  We were hoping to take a dip in the pool tonight, but if the rain comes in then we won't be doing that.  I also need to be studying for the upcoming test I have on.....uhhh THURSDAY! Whoops.  Oh well, I am sure I will do fine.  I will listen to my lessons all day tomorrow and practice the homework.  Then I only have 2 more weeks, thank the good Lord above!  Then I am off for 3 week before my crazy busy semester starts.!  The good news tho, with the fall semester starting, you know what time it is....FOOTBALL AND TAILGATING!  Yes I know I know, I yelled it, get over it!  I love me some Cowboy football (college not pro) and I love tailgating with friends.  It's always a good time. 

So while I am on a break from school, I fully intend to take advantage and do some wedding planning.  We are on the hunt for the venue and I need to start getting together all my ideas in a little planner...where can I find one of those???  I am in NEED of a cutzie planner for all my  ideas, wants, and must-haves!  I already have my wedding dress, but I need to pick the bridesmaid dresses and such.  Decisions, decisions, decisions. I am also searching for brooches for my bridal brooch bouquet.  I saw Miranda Lambert's brooch bouquet and fell in love.  It is stunning and have to do it.  I have some already and so does most of my family so I am off to find more at thrift stores, estate sales and flea markets.  Hope to have some good ones!

Better get back to number crunching...month end is ready to be closed!!  YEA!

Thank you thank to the Lord above!!  I am in much need of time away from work and time to relax.  I hope to accomplish at least one of those this weekend!  I am house sitting for my boss for the next week starting tonight so I will be taking daily dips in the pool after work, maybe even tonight!!  I fully intend to do the followingSee full size image this weekend...(because I think pictures are more fun than words)

I hope you all have a fab weekend full of fun!

We are starting...

To get the ball rolling on the wedding planning.  We are only 11 months away from our big day!!!  While I know, I don't have my ring yet, it's coming ladies...I PROMISE!!  So today, I was just working away searching the Internet for fabulous ideas for our Save The Dates (my inspiration came from a handmade weddings book at HL) and I started searching, when what to my wondering eyes should appear but the PERFECT mini-keys!!!  I instantly started emailing my sister and future MIL to get their ideas.  Then I decided to email the seller since there weren't enough on the site for me to buy for all our STD's...about three clicks later I had my own reserved listing with just over what I will need and bam those little babies were mine.  Best part you ask???  Oh I got 100 for 6.00 bucks!  And that's how I roll!  I couldn't be more excited!!  So I picked up these...
25 Mini Key Charms

And I will make these...
